I haven't used that program.  Others may be able to discuss it.

Gene, I looked in Baliboka and didn't see anything about sample rates in the audio files settings.



earlier, Gene, wrote:
If you are using a bit rate of 32kbps, you will get better results using 2250.  If you are using 64. you should probably leave the sample rate at the default which is something like 44100.  I don't recall the exact default number.  I'm not sure which sample rate might give better results if you use a bit rate of 48kbps.  And as I said, I'm recommending settings based on how I hear compressed audio.  You may want to check both the 2250 and the default 44100 bit rate at 32kbps and 48kbps.  you may want to compare at 64kbps as well but I think at that bit rate, you should the 44100 bit rate.

Hi all,

Well, this question is questionable but if it's plain mono audio 22050
should be sufficient.

Re: choosing a Solid state drive

Beth
 

Oh, okay. I might consider that at some point. Yay. But I don't know what is the different between SSD or solid state drive and portables or what category other drives fall into in the arena of externals. Sorry I feel like I'm playing dumb here.

Hi Bill,
First, welcome to the list.
To select a different player to be your default player, follow
these
steps:
1. Press Windows+I to open Settings.
2. From Settings, navigate to System/Default apps and press ENTER..
3. Press TAB until you land on music. Press SPACE, then use TAB to
select the player you want and press ENTER. Do this for the video app.
Regarding opinions and other Windows 10 goodies, what would you

Are you looking at a specific solid state drive. I have been thinking
of getting one as my main drive and would love opinions or
recommendations.

Hello Jessica,
I don't have Windows 10 installed at the moment so I'm afraid I can't
offer much direct assistance. There seem to be quite a few articles,
but unfortunately most of them are not written with an accessible
point of view in mind. You can try this one and see if it helps.

Hi
Can someone please help me set up Cortana?
How can I do this?
I'm using the latest version of NVDA.

Hi Bill,
First, welcome to the list.
To select a different player to be your default player, follow
these
steps:
1. Press Windows+I to open Settings.
2. From Settings, navigate to System/Default apps and press ENTER..
3. Press TAB until you land on music. Press SPACE, then use TAB to
select the player you want and press ENTER. Do this for the video app.
Regarding opinions and other Windows 10 goodies, what would you
like to know? In terms of system security and privacy, it depends
(some say it's good, while others say it's a bad thing). Regarding
accessibility, I can testify that it is a work in progress
(nowadays I'm investigating accessibility of various so-called
universal Windows
apps with NVDA).
In regards to screen reader, I'm the resident NVDA developer here
so I can tell you how NVDA does things with Windows 10, and we do
have expert screen reader users (like Gene asner and Carlos) who
can tell you about how their screen readers work with Windows 10.
Cheers,
Joseph

what I'm particularly wanting to know is can you choose your player

Actually, more likely $600 to $800. Although I did see a 1 TB model for $370 or so.

Hi TerriLynne,

OP4/ref=pd_cp_147_4?ie=UTF8&refRID=0S2WRQ827QVRNPXAPGNE
It is the 256 GB addition which is currently selling for $138.00, but it is
available in different sizes. You can purchase the 128 GB addition for
$92.49. It is the first solid state drive based on 3D VNAND flash which
means in part that it has greater endurance for long term storage compared
to older designs. It also boasts low power consumption and better
read/write speeds than most other drives in this category. Blah blah blah,
and so on and so on LOL.

Re: choosing a Solid state drive

Walter Ramage
 

Hi. When I got my second SSD just over 2 years ago (the first got fried in
a lightning strike on my house) the largest then was 500gig but they wanted
silly money for it so I got a 256gig with the fastest read and fastest write
they had. I really like the SSD because the boot time is only 20-25
seconds, and that is with a couple of external drives connected. Walter.

Hi Bill,
First, welcome to the list.
To select a different player to be your default player, follow
these
steps:
1. Press Windows+I to open Settings.
2. From Settings, navigate to System/Default apps and press ENTER..
3. Press TAB until you land on music. Press SPACE, then use TAB to
select the player you want and press ENTER. Do this for the video app.
Regarding opinions and other Windows 10 goodies, what would you
like to know? In terms of system security and privacy, it depends
(some say it's good, while others say it's a bad thing). Regarding
accessibility, I can testify that it is a work in progress
(nowadays I'm investigating accessibility of various so-called
universal Windows
apps with NVDA).
In regards to screen reader, I'm the resident NVDA developer here
so I can tell you how NVDA does things with Windows 10, and we do
have expert screen reader users (like Gene asner and Carlos) who
can tell you about how their screen readers work with Windows 10.
Cheers,
Joseph

Re: choosing a Solid state drive

For the record, I currently have a 128 GB SSD and about 48 GB free so my Windows installation is fairly minimal compared to some.

It is the 256 GB addition which is currently selling for $138.00, but it is
available in different sizes. You can purchase the 128 GB addition for
$92.49. It is the first solid state drive based on 3D VNAND flash which
means in part that it has greater endurance for long term storage compared
to older designs. It also boasts low power consumption and better
read/write speeds than most other drives in this category. Blah blah blah,

Re: Compacting Folders In Windows Live Mail?

Carlos
 

It has been removed because unlike Outlook Express, Windows Live Mail does not use DBX files to store messages.  It stores them as individual EML files so compression is not necessary.

In Outlook Express on my old XP PC, the Folders submenu had an option to compact all folders, which also initiated automatically after OE was opened 100 times.  I am now using Windows Live Mail as my email client on my Windows 7 PC, but cannot find any similar menu option on the Folders submenu.  Does this mean that the Compact All Folders feature has been eliminated in WLM, and that I no longer need to be concerned about compacting folders?  Thanks.

At least for me yes since I don't have many large applications installed and I store all of my data on a separate drive, but your mileage will vary if you have either a lot of software or many large applications installed.

I would be careful TerriLynne.  Although I did not personally upload the file, it is supposed to be an MP3 file, not an executable.  Probably more third-party junkware from SendSpace.  Try downloading the file again and if necessary refresh the page with F5 which sometimes removes the advertisement and junkware.

Subject: [TechTalk] any opinions on windows 10

Hi Everyone,
I'm one of the new guys and am wondering if we have any windows 10
users here.
what I'm particularly wanting to know is can you choose your player
of choice to be used instead of that groove music thing? If so,
please tell me how I do this.
many thanks,

Hi TerriLynne,
I wasn't really referring to any major software packages. Most of the
problems I experienced were specific to my own configuration and were
primarily related to tweaks/scripts that I personally use and in one case a
driver for an audio interface.

Hi Carlos,
Since everyone uses their computers differently and for different
purposes, can you tell me which programs didn't work well with Windows
10?

things that I need to work just didn't. I did however create an image
of the installation so I can just switch back and forth between 7 and
10 when ever I'm in the mood.
Next is purchasing a new solid state drive that I've been looking at
so I can set it up in a dual boot configuration. For my own personal
use I don't really care for 10, but setting it up in a dual boot
configuration will make it easier to assist others on the list who are
running it.

About Windows 10, I can say coming from XP, that I think it's OK.

Best from,

Hello Jessica,
I don't have Windows 10 installed at the moment so I'm afraid I can't
offer much direct assistance. There seem to be quite a few articles,
but unfortunately most of them are not written with an accessible
point of view in mind. You can try this one and see if it helps.

Hi
Can someone please help me set up Cortana?
How can I do this?
I'm using the latest version of NVDA.

Hi Bill,
First, welcome to the list.
To select a different player to be your default player, follow
these
steps:
1. Press Windows+I to open Settings.
2. From Settings, navigate to System/Default apps and press ENTER..
3. Press TAB until you land on music. Press SPACE, then use TAB to
select the player you want and press ENTER. Do this for the video app.
Regarding opinions and other Windows 10 goodies, what would you
like to know? In terms of system security and privacy, it depends
(some say it's good, while others say it's a bad thing). Regarding
accessibility, I can testify that it is a work in progress
(nowadays I'm investigating accessibility of various so-called
universal Windows
apps with NVDA).
In regards to screen reader, I'm the resident NVDA developer here
so I can tell you how NVDA does things with Windows 10, and we do
have expert screen reader users (like Gene asner and Carlos) who
can tell you about how their screen readers work with Windows 10.
Cheers,
Joseph
